Don’t you love rummaging through a good market – the Fitzroy Market is the perfect such rummagable market with car boot sales, Stalls a kids craft area and coffee cart.

When Simone, Be Style Wise, suggested we meet there a few Saturdays ago I was really excited as I hadn’t been To the Fitzroy Market before and was after a new dress. I loved that she had thought of it so that I could bring Binky too!


The market is set up in the Fitzroy Primary School grounds (please don’t type “Fitzroy Market” into your GPS as it doesn’t end well) and is in it’s second year. It’s a not fro profit event designed to bring the local community together and has developed a strong following judging by the crowds!

The market consists of 15 car boot stalls, 27 standard stalls, 4 food stalls, a kids craft area, and space for musicians and performers. The majority of the goods are second hand and it’s like being able to shop I a large out door op-shop. Clothes ranged from fifty cents up depending on what you were looking at – but I noticed most seemed to be substantially cheaper than nearby op shops.


Simone, Binks (in her bag) and I had a lovely time browsing the stores with purchases being made in the clothing, jewelry and shoe categories. Binks did go a little over the top with hat purchases silly puppy! Simone managed to score a stunning pair of vintage shoes –


Gorgeous right? On the way back through the market around 2pm, I managed to snag binks a snag (minus the bread) and made her day. I must admit it is very easy to make her day. Poor dog living with a vegetarian.

The Fitzroy Market is a great outing and I know I will be back – one never knows when an entire outfit for under ten dollars must be purchased!

The Fitzroy Market runs the first Saturday of every month (excluding Jan, July & Aug) from 10am to 2pm. There is very limited parking but plenty of space to secure a bike and easy access to public transport.
